Default Something just doesn't look right here....

I'm not picking on the photographer but there are other, better ways to successfully lighten an area that is dark or shadowed on a photo. It would be a fine photo with a *correct* edit. Did this photo catch anybody else's eye also?

I'm kinda shocked it made it on RP. Even the thumbnail looked off to me. Maybe I'm off my rocker again. Just some ranting.....

Some serious dodging (lightening) has been done to the pilot...

I agree this one should have been rejected for over-processing. We'll correct the error and contact the photographer to explain.

Thanks!

It certainly appears that way.

I recall not too long ago you refused to use a members photo as an example for a 'discussion' we were having and when I used your own on the forum you got upset. Your opinion on this kind of thing must have changed!

IMO, this kind of thing should have PMed to the photographer and then if the photographer wished to take it to the forum for further assistance he/she can.

I know this is petty, but I couldn't help myself. Just some ranting...
